Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.

Time as symphony

We think about time in linear terms, neglecting the world’s story unfolds with different narratives. One for each human life, and every other sentient being on this planet.

Each narrative has a different rhythm.

Perhaps it would be best if we understood time as a symphony. What is the temporal challenge in this context?


It’s not dissonant parts of the world’s symphony which negatively affect the world’s patterns, but unsynchronized narratives.

It’s not easy to synchronize if you don’t listen and understand the others’ rhythms. Listening is likely to be the first step in finding harmony in the diverse rhythms of the world.
